Strength of Fragile Things

I’ve been so busy with getting everything ready at home for the baby’s arrival and tying up loose ends for business purposes, that I haven’t had much time for computer time. But here I am, hello!
A few weeks ago I mentioned reworking old paintings and this is one of them. The original painting was actually not old, I created it last year. You can see it here. I was never fully satisfied with it, I can’t really tell you why, it was just a feeling.
And it wouldn’t leave me alone. It was like an itch in a place on your back that you can’t reach.
When I first started reworking it, I tried to maintain the same light palette, but as you can see, I departed from that. I am much happier with this now.
The itch has been scratched.
Remember when I announced that I had one my paintings used for an album cover? Well, James Shipp, the musician, sent me one of the cds and it was so exciting to open it up and see my work as part of this album. You can listen to some of the tracks in the Listen section. I really like the last track on there. Isn’t her voice beautiful?
